2020 Arthur S. Flemming Award - Alexey Gorshkov

Alexey Gorshkov

Gorshkov’s pioneering research at the crossroads of quantum optics, and atomic and condensed matter physics is helping to usher in the coming quantum revolution. His landmark achievement of creating strong interactions between photons provides a practical basis for a new generation of technology, where instead of electrons, circuits of light are used to perform logical operations and computations. Expanding upon his successful demonstration, which was hailed as one of Physics World’s Top 10 breakthroughs, he has shown novel ways to control strongly coupled atom/light systems, and is laying the theoretical foundation for a new suite of enabling quantum technologies.
